Kante has received plaudits for the way he acts both on and off the field, and on Saturday he showed once more why many regard him as the ‘nicest man in football’.
The diminutive midfielder plays the beautiful game with a beaming smile, and he gave Chelsea fans a lot to be happy about following his teams performance on Saturday.
Chelsea beat London rivals Arsenal 3-2 to secure all three Premier League points.
Arsenal supporter Sharky met Kante after the game and asked to take a photo with the midfielder.
Sharky then wrote on Twitter about the encounter:
“Just met this man. Told him I was an arsenal fan and I was upset about the game this weekend but he smiled at me and said ‘sorry’. What a guy,”
